    O carte care nu a intrecut asteptarile mele, insa m-a scos din reading slump asa ca voi incerca si urmatorul volum, deci mai ofer o sansa seriei, care cred ca mi-ar fi placut MULT mai mult daca as fi citit-o pe la 9-10 ani.

    Jake's Review: A really funny book that is a lot like Diary of a Wimpy Kid except for the fact that Tom is a lot cooler of a kid. The beginning of the book was lame but it got a lot better after about 20 pages. It is a really easy book to read so kids like Brian who don't like to read will actually like to read a book. The pictures make it fun to look at too. I didn't understand some of the words, but after mom showed me the glossary at the end, ...

    Meet Tom Gates. He's an ordinary 10 year old who has deep passion in Art, Music, Excuses, annoying sisters (such as Delia) and Amy Porter(his crush). He dislikes Marcus Maldrew, Delia, Teachers and School. But the thing is, in order to impress Amy Porter and get those Dude3 (his favorite band) concert tickets, he has to be on a good behavior and at the same time keep his school profile chill. His Band, the Dog Zombies, play their first act and it...

    Nisam ljubiteljica Gregovog dnevnika, ali Timija i Toma definitivno. S tim da je Tom ja :)Na trenutke sam se bas glasno nasmijala, premda sam vise puta iscitavala dijelove za radionice i klubove i sad jos jednom prosla cijeli tekst. Popratne ilustracije su famozne, vjerojatno najljepse od svih knjzuljaka ovakvog tipa! Likovi su genijalni, odusevljava me njihova zaigranost, prof. Fullerman i nacin na koji je *pravi igrac* da se posluzim Fulghamovi...

    This was another book on the list for 'Book Day' at work, and another one that I wasn't looking forward to. Last year I had to read 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' and I really didn't like it. I can see the appeal for children - it's quick and easy to read, but to me there was no substance, I was afraid this book would follow the trend.Wow, was I wrong. Tom Gates is instantly likeable, he has a great sense of humour, his drawings make me smile and the boo...

    Es ist auf jeden Fall unterhaltsam, aber Gregs Tagebücher fand ich besser, nicht so langweilig. Auch die Zeichnungen bei Tom Gates sind nicht besonders, als wären sie aus dem Zeichenlernbuch "Punkt Punkt Komma Strich" abgemalt. Zwischendurch ist es mal was anderes und man hat es auch schnell durchgelesen.

    Cute start to a series about Tom Gates, a fifth year student who loves to draw, has a crush on one of his classmates, and is perpetually late to school (and always blames his older sister, Delia, for his tardiness).Someone had said in an Amazon review that this was the British version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I beg to differ. I tried a few of the Wimpy Kid books, and didn't care for them at all. OK, there are similarities here: two boys of about ...

    If you are a dairy of a wimpy kid fan this is for you! Great book filled with comedy, courage and art and a very easy quick read. Great for any of those who are young readers and any grown up!! I think I would give this book a 4/5!

    These were so popular in my school library a couple years ago it was a race to this ‘pic’ section after the summer holidays. Now i want to read the ones the school didn’t have

    I really enjoyed this book.I laughed a lot and despite the fact that the main character was a fifth grader, I could really understand him.I felt so connected and I really loved it when I felt that old feeling of worrying over childish stuff.I found a lot of similarities between this book and "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid" series.It's obvious that they belong to the same genre and I think anyone who loves that series would love this series too ,but I also...

    Pidin enemmän kuin Timi Möhläristä ja Nipasta mutta miksi näissä kirjoissa on niin paljon sivuja. Tämäkin menisi heikolle lukijalle vielä paremmin jos yhdestä kirjasta olisi vaikka tehty kaksi. Koska ei nämä himolukijoiden juttu ole.

    Túto knihu som prečítala spolu so svojim 9 ročným synom počas mojej PNky. On čítal už niekoľko dielov z tejto série. Kniha je super, napísaná jednoducho, autor používa pubertiacky slang, ohsahuje množstvo vtipných komiksových čarbačiek. Proste ideálna pre deti. Naše rozhovory pri čítaní tejto knihy spolu, mi priblížili vnímanie okolia jeho očami, všetky tie srandičky o rodičoch, sestre, učiteloch a poznámkach kto...

    Tom Gates is a normal boy who goes to a normal school. He has a normal family and friends. Yet, somehow, he still has his adventures. Join him on his adventures by reading this book.I rated this book 3/5 stars because it is hilarious and brilliant with both words and illustrations, but lacks an attention grabbing plot. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a break from serious books.

    واقعا بهش چهار میدم. البته به عنوان یه کار کودک. پرداخت شخصیت تام و خوانواده اش عالیه و باورپذیر. سیر حوادث و اتفاقات معمول زندگیش و بهانه های خلاقانه اش و راه حل هاش واقعا جالب توجه و برای خیلی ها حتی نوستالژیه. دوستان و همکلاسیاش خیلی خوبن. مخصوصا در...

    This is a really good book to read if you don't know what to read this is about a boy named tom who has a grumpy sister delia. A few things that he likes are waffles and cookies and he also like to draw in class and when the teacher is not looking . His best friend is Derek and his enemy is Marcus.

    I'll admit I didn't have really high expectations for this one - I didn't think it would be bad, just I didn't think it would be something I'd enjoy as an adult. I can see why the kids like it, but I won't die if I don't get to read the rest of the Tom Gates books. Full review coming on theteacherslibrary.org

    Veľmi príjemná oddychovka, dosť jednoduchá, aj trojročná dcéra sa chytila na príbeh a obrázky a tým pádom som mohla čítať pri nej.

    Even though I haven't read this book YET but all Liz Picton books are so good and you should at least try and read this book because it's really good. I'll rate as a 5*

    Den her bog er det rene spas! Den hører godt til blandt bøger i samme skuffe som fx Timmy Taber og Wimpy Kid serierne.Bogen hedder Tom Gates: Min Geniale Verden og den er skrevet af en engelsk børnebogsforfatter ved navn Liz Perchon.Serien er foreløbig på 12 bøger (3 på dansk) og den er en kæmpe international bestseller.Når man går igang med Tom Gates, så er man heller ikke i tvivl om, hvorfor den er så populær.Den er hylemorsom og i...

    *sigh* What can I say about 'The Brilliant World of Tom Gates'? It reminded me A LOT of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'!! Except the character was in primary school instead of high school (or middle school for those living in America) and his storytelling/writing was even more horrible than Greg's! Plus, not only was he selfish, simple-minded, ridiculous and annoying but he was even more of a typical boy than Greg could ever be - and that's saying somethi...

    The Brilliant World of Tom Gates is a boy that goes through the troubles of life and school and problems. He lies to his teachrs and parens and that puts him in tighter situations sometimes. H gets caught cheating and lying and later learns that doing this is not the way of life. This is a good book for readers who enjoy realistic fiction. Readers can learn what not to do through the troubles that Tom Gates has in his life. This bood is similr to...
